A new member expressed her gratefulness for the YMCA today. She joined three days ago and has come each day and has already had several positive interactions with staff. She specifically mentioned Matt in Member Services and Katie in Wellness. She is looking forward to meeting with Katie for a PT plan to get her on track, and she's confident that Katie will help her achieve her wellness goals.
A member who participated in the Annual Meeting Zoom call expressed her praise for Janneke and her leadership. She said it was very impressive how Janneke handled the meeting, and that she sees Janneke out and about doing many things around the building and that she is very impressed with the YMCA's leadership and CEO.
Facebook post in the Winona Moms group: My son who is 6 has a fear of the water but we are out on the river all summer so it's really important for him to have some swimming skills. Erin at the Y was soooo patient with him and had some really good ideas to push him a bit to help be more comfortable.
"Many thanks, endless thanks almost to all the folks that run the Y’s engine. It feels a privilege to be a part and witness to the good will of everyone." - Lynn Carlson
